Sinew backed bows of the Americas

Heartwood Bows is the result of a  28 year passion of the research, replication and testing of the sinew backed bows of North America. All my bows have been meticulously researched. The materials methods and construction create a finished bow/arrows that are a fully functioning exact replica of a 150 + year old weapon.
 I also make bows that take the best of all these designs to create a superior hunting weapon for the hunter who wants to take game with a traditional North American inspired bow. Taking full advantage of the wood/sinew combo, these bows can be made shorter, and make excellent tree stand, or ambush bows, as well as ease of movement in thick vegetation. 
 I can only take a limited number of special orders from people who want an exact type of bow, from a specific tribe/area etc.  If you are unhappy with the finished product you may decline the purchase and have your deposit refunded. I make all my bows as if they were for me. I also offer a 6 month guarantee on all my bows. They are not just to be admired. They are superior reproductions and hunting weapons made for use, that I base my reputation on.
 Please see my gallery and reproduction pages for bows on hand. It lists the background and history of the bow, as well as stats on the performance and shooting of the bow.
 Thanks for visiting
